Default windows 98 computer problem

I hate windows 98 computers but my little brother has one in his room and today he told me it wasnt working I looked at it and when it booted up a message came up that said "searching for boot record" then it said "not found" I tried to but make a boot disk but it didnt seem to work do any of you guys know what to do because im stumped on this one.

First off, 98 sucks, get 2k if you can.

Second off, if you know of another 98 PC you can use, you can use it to make a boot disk.
